Stained Glass Easter -- "Indescribable Gift" stamp set
Happy Monday, Everyone!
I have been playing around with the stained glass technique lately, and wanted to share this card we will be making at my next club. Note: this card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest, by Teneale Williams -- https://www.pinterest.com/pin/497507090062226749/. I loved the springy look of it, and the white embossing gives such a soft look. I did my own twist on it, but the inspiration came from there.
This technique is really pretty simple: choose a stamp image that you can color in, stamp your image in Versamark ink on vellum card stock and emboss with your choice of embossing powder color. Here, in the first card, I used white embossing powder, because I wanted a soft look, and in the second one, I used black embossing powder for a bolder, more modern look. Once you have embossed the image, color the images in on the back side of your vellum using the Blendabilities markers. They dry more quickly on the vellum than some other mediums. You won't get a blended look necessarily, and that is ok -- I think the contrast adds to the final result. What do you think???? The vellum front panel is adhered to a Whisper White card stock panel that is the same size, using glue dots in the corners, and then placing rhinestones over top to conceal the glue dots that want to show through the vellum.
Other products used on the first card: Calypso coral card base, whisper white card stock, Early Espresso card stock, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Calypso Coral Blendabilities markers, Calypso Coral chevron ribbon, and Basic rhinestones.
